Learn "American Idioms" to sound more like a native English-speaker!

Description  

Hello Cafetalk Community!

Do you know "American Idioms?" Actually, knowing figurative and descriptive idioms helps you sound more like a native-speaker. If you take the idioms literally, it may confuse you because they have quite a different meaning than it sounds. American Idioms and expressions are used by native English-speakers. 

[Definition 
idiom:] . A traditional way of saying something. Often an idiom, such as “under the weather,” does not seem to make sense if taken literally. Someone unfamiliar with English idioms would probably not understand that to be “under the weather” is to be sick. (Dictionary.com)

There are many American Idioms used by native American speakers. I will explain and describe a list of American Idioms in this lesson. Not only is it fun to learn idioms, it will also help you understand the English language when you are having a conversation.

I've lived most of my life in Los Angeles, California in the US, and as a result, I am a native American English-speaker. Regarding my education, I attended UCLA and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Theatre Arts. More recently, I acquired a Master's degree in Library and Information Science (MLIS) from the San Jose State University (SJSU). As a result, I am qualified to teach English.

In addition, in case you have trouble understanding the explanation of the American Idioms in English, I also speak Japanese fluently. I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan until I turned 18 years old and moved to the US after graduating from an American School located at Yokota Air Force base.

I am a gentle, fun, and flexible teacher, and I think you will have fun learning American Idioms. I
f you think I'm a suitable English tutor for you, I would appreciate your consideration! Hope to see you soon!

Warmest regards,
Lady Ayame
